The hearing that Judge Kavanaugh had to go through with Dr. Ford’s allegations was a truly dark moment in our nation’s history. The left has shown they will stop at nothing for power, even if it means destroying a person’s reputation with uncorroborated allegations. Instead of going into the graphic details of what occurred, this post will highlight what really has motivated the left to act in such a way against an eminently qualified jurist in Judge Kavanaugh. This hearing was simply part of a larger plan to resist the Constitution at all costs. The left realizes that this document is what stands in between them and unlimited and unregulated power to fundamentally change American society for the worse.
Constitutionalism jurisprudence does not adhere to public sentiment and the changing attitudes of society, rather it adheres first and foremost to the Constitution itself. While a progressive jurist such as Sonia Sotomayor will be persuaded considerably by the needs of society and tend to embrace a legislative role for the Court, one in the Clarence Thomas mold will not, but rather concentrate their jurisprudential philosophy on the text of the Constitution. There lies the heart of the progressive dilemma. Notable influential cases on society such as Griswold v. Connecticut, Roe v. Wade, Planned Parenthood v. Casey and Obergefell v. Hodges all had the common elements of replacing the valid voice of the people that had been applied through their legislatures while assessing the creation of new rights with the voice of the Supreme Court. These cases are just some examples of invalid judicial interference in democracy. The Constitution as properly applied did not support these outcomes yet they occurred because the Court at those moments was too willing to buckle under pressure from outside forces rather than focus on the Constitution itself. Focusing on the Constitution itself includes what is provided within it and what it does not have in it. Part of the duty of a judge is to not invent rights by stretching and vaguely interpreting terms to just be aligned with supposed proper societal sentiment. This is a disservice to the nation and rule of law and is what the radical left thrives on.
The left fears that another Constitutionalist on the Court will give it the 5-4 majority it needs to return the Court back to Constitutionalism and text driven strict interpretation to derail the legislative influence of the Supreme Court. Most importantly judges in the Kavanaugh mold believe in judicial restraint and will be reluctant to be a rubber stamp for the supposed changing attitudes of society that should be addressed in the legislature. The left realizes, however, that it does not often have the majority of the people united behind them in their initiatives to breed success at the legislative level. That is why they have turned to the Supreme Court time and time again to rescues these initiatives. See the invented doctrine of substantive due process that has bloody origins from the Dred Scott case- when slaves were viewed as property and not people.
The left also recognizes that a future democrat’s presidency will be significantly constrained when dealing with a deeply Constitutionalist court. It is no coincidence that Robert Bork, Clarence Thomas and now Judge Kavanaugh were so strongly opposed. Judge Kavanaugh has been through the most difficult of these processes with the relentless attacks on his entire life and his family by a radical leftist agenda. It no longer is confined to his body of legal work, but as he had said in his own words they have carried out a “search and destroy” mission. Find the Constitutionalist and destroy him or her so they cannot be in a position to positively influence Constitutional interpretation. The left fears that Judge Kavanaugh will adhere to the Constitutionalist method much more than his former boss, Justice Anthony Kennedy and as an intellectual legal heavyweight this poses a direct challenge to their power trip.
The left has succeeded in pushing their radical agenda on society through the Supreme Court and does not want it to be stopped. They recognize Judge Kavanaugh as a danger for being too learned, too Constitutionalist. He may find himself in the majority of cases in scaling back the administrative state. He may be ruling favorably in cases that consider the strength of the free exercise clause. Finally, and most threatening to the left he may one day be a deciding vote in scaling back abortion rights significantly if not a full overturn as a matter of Constitutional law.
The left as represented by Cory Booker, Kamela Harris and other radicals cannot be bound by the text of the Constitution, it limits their influence and is the only check on their power. Deep down they fear the voice of the people and want to take that voice away by purposefully twisting the text of the Constitution and dismissing the proper role of the judiciary to reach an unjust end.
Tearing down Judge Kavanaugh also symbolizes tearing down the Constitution. When being subjected to their antics on the news waves in the coming weeks and years, have this in the back of your mind. The very people they are tearing down, are the very ones with a record of being a guardian to the Constitution. This issue is bigger than Brett Kavanaugh, it encompasses the very governing structure of our society. Publius has warned- the question posed to you is: will you be complicit in this destruction or will you take steps to stop it?
